I scored 74% on my second last undergrad essay. I did not see that coming. Give the half-arsed nature of the assignment, I was expecting about 55%. This has made an already pretty good day a whole lot better.

I've started looking into TESOL courses I can do before I go to Japan. I'm torn between a cheap one that can I afford to pay for on my own, or a good one that I would have to sweet talk my parents into. I know they would willingly pay the difference if it made a difference, but I'm not sure it will. If I were looking to make teaching overseas my life, then hell yeah I'd do the CELTA course, but I just don't know if it is necessary for what I want to do.

I hate making decisions.

Cadbury advertising really has done its job well. As soon as the creepy kids with the eyebrows ad came on I knew right away it was a Cadbuy ad. It was the dress that did it. No advertiser would unintentionally do that.

I really hate that ad, it is creepy.

I made my first ever pie today. I overcompensated for sour blackberries with too much sugar, so the guts are disgustingly sweet, almost inedibly so, but it held together and the crust is beautiful. I am very excited about that part, it was my great-great-grandmother's recipe and I was paranoid I would fuck it up.

I'm slowly exploring the Merlin fandom. It seems pretty awesome.

appalling_cynicism: (I'd pay to see that)
I watched the first two eps of Merlin last night. I may now ship Merlin/Arthur. Seriously, they're begging for it. I have to say, though, I'm a little puzzled by the whole Arthur/Guinevere role reversal. Isn't half the point of the Arthur mythology that Arthur was raised as a commoner?

Apparently, I am just ignoring that thing I said about plans top stop acquiring fandoms like they're going out of style. *le sigh* If only I listened to myself...

appalling_cynicism: (Beautiful)
I like Derek's new hair. Is it new? It's the first time I've noticed it at least. It looks less, well, horribly fake than his old hair. And he really did look dapper in that suit.

Why does Izzy still have hair? That seriously kills my willing suspension of disbelief. She had fricking brain surgery. She should not have long, lovely locks. Nitpicky, I know, but it really bloody bugs me.

Cut for the spoilerphobes )

As for Private Practice, I had to go back and download last week's episode which I missed, apparently. So I'll probably post about it later.

I love my Pushing Daisies soundtrack. It just makes me joyful.

appalling_cynicism: (The geek shall inherit the earth.)
I may have started reading Life fic, mostly Charlie/Ted. I like it in the same way I like River/Simon. It is kind of completely fucked up and inappropriate, but fascinating and makes a twisted sort of sense.

I need to stop acquiring fandoms like they're going out of style.

ETA Does is actually count as a new fandom if there are only about 5 ship fics? Okay, the gen in this fandom is pretty awesome, so I guess it does still count.

appalling_cynicism: (A turn for the bizarre)
So, that was rather, well, anti-climactic.

One non-spoilery note - Claire, when there is a shapeshifter on the loose, especially an evil shapeshifter, someone saying "I am X" does not actually make them X. Just so you know for next time.

Spoilery )

Jon Stewart is seriously fucking awesome. I don't think I've ever wanted to jump him so badly before.

AJ is seriously sparkly tonight. I suspect she fell into the glitter pot.

ETA Holy bloody hotness, Batman. They had some really gorgeous girls underneath the fat. Particularly Teresa. I kind of want to jump Teresa.
